Says it could "gravely damage the family"Thursday, July 8, 2010
Bergoglio accuses same-sex marriage bill of 'being Satan's work to destroy God's plan'
Regarding same-sex marriage advocates, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, stated in a letter sent to several monasteries in the province that, "theirs is not a simple political struggle, it is about their intentions to destroy God's plan," he stated.
In the letter, Bergoglio warned about a situation "that might gravely damage the family."
"The family's identity and survival is what's at stake here. Mom, dad, and their children," he said, while adding that "the lives of many children are in danger of being discriminated and deprived, before hand, of the human maturing that God professed involving a mother and a father."
"What's at stake is a blatant rejection to God's law, which is branded in our hearts," he explained.
Bergoglio accused the bill of being more than just "a simple legislative instrument" and said it was "a move by the devil, looking to confuse and deceive all children of God."
The Cardinal said he hoped "for God to send his spirit to senators who will be casting their vote."
"Let them not cast their vote in error or due to the current situation, but do it according to God's law. May the Lord give them strength so they can help our country," he declared.
Finally, Bergoglio reminded his followers of God's words, in which he said "this war belonged to him."
